Another Hero Down

Patrick Leigh Fermor, dead at 96.

I was perhaps the only person on earth who believed he would finish And the article says that we'll see the last book in the trilogy that started with "A Time of Gifts" and continued with "Between the Woods and the Water." Those two books are simply beautiful. If you haven't read them, and possess an ounce of interest in the world beyond your neighborhood, do yourself a favor.

(edited because I'm very obviously a moron who didn't read to the end of the Guardian obit.)
